We rarely used LinkedIn.

With LinkedIn you can see the person’s experience. People tend to reply when you contact them through it, but there is no way to search for profiles easily.

We also use LinkedIn for content management at a smaller scale and plan to scale it even further. The point is that you can reach different kinds of people that you cannot reach on Facebook. It’s the only platform that is just focused on business so the kind of people that are on LinkedIn and what are they looking for are not necessarily what you’ll find on Facebook.

LinkedIn - Best Job Boards Tools for Startups

LinkedIn is a professional social media network that helps you connect to a massive pool of potential employees and recruiters. For the individual user, it’s a wonderful way to build a network in your industry and hunt for new opportunities. For companies, it’s a way to find new talent. Many businesses subscribe to the LinkedIn Recruiter package, which helps them navigate the vast ocean of candidates with advanced searches, automatic candidate tracking and unlimited profile views. The network itself contains 300 million members in over 200 countries, which makes it easily the largest pool of talent there is.

How startups use LinkedIn?

LinkedIn’s massive talent pool is a great resource for companies of all sizes, but the Recruiting tool itself can be a little expensive--particularly if you need to purchase multiple licenses--making it a better fit for larger companies with more resources.

How much does LinkedIn cost?

LinkedIn itself is a free service, and they offer a free month of their advanced LinkedIn Recruiter Lite package, but once the trial expires it costs $119.95/month or $1,199.40/year. The full LinkedIn Recruiter is even more powerful but doesn’t publicize its pricing.
